A website with links to free advice about debt, benefits and housing has been launched across the district.

The site, which also has a telephone advice line, has been developed by Bradford Community Advice Network – a partnership of charities – and Incommunities.

It will also provide support in areas such as employment, health and education and aims to make it easy for residents to find face-to-face advice in their area, as well as giving links to the websites of national charities such as Citizens Advice and Shelter.

Coun Imran Hussain, deputy leader of Bradford Council, said: “This is an excellent initiative that will provide a lifeline to some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable communities in our district.”
